Lemanis have spent the last couple of years in and out of the studio recording our first album, and assembling a large army of superb musicians to back us up both in the studio and on stage. The little orchestra we've found ourselves very proud to be involved with includes a string quartet and horn section, as well as flutes and a female backing singer.
All 4 members of the band are multi-instrumentalists and singers, so we all get to play and sing the bits we're best at.
"A HUGE sound...It sounds great!" - Seth Lakeman
"Complex structure and fluctuating musical patterns that demand your absolute attention" - Ewan McKenzie - Director of Whimsical Records
"The English Polyphonic Spree" - Ray Rose - Director of Eat Records
"When Brian Wilson was searching for the right musos for his 'Smile' project, he could have borrowed Plymouth's Lemanis and got the job done in a week. The neo-psychedelic post-rock ensemble twinkle, strum, strut, parp and harmonise like its a heady 1968, letting their imaginations run wild with not a care in the world about a nation of HMV staff workers struggling to place the band in a suitable genre rack...All wistful and quite beautiful." - Backbone, 24/7 magazine.
